This Hazy IPA rolls in at a smooth 6.1% ABV and is brimming with peachy, juicy citrus flavors from the ample dry hopping of Nectaron, Citra, and Amarillo hops. We also used a new thiolized yeast that works cohesively with this list of specially curated ingredients chosen by Brady and Paul.

Horchata - inspired Wit Beer

A Nod to Tradition: Chata brings you the essence of horchata, blending the classic harmony of rice, cinnamon, and vanilla with the refreshing qualities of a wit beer. Each sip is a silky and spiced dance of velvety textures and the warmth of cinnamon, intertwining effortlessly with the subtle sweetness of rice and vanilla.

Chata does contain lactose and is clearly labeled as such.

The spicy and floral hop notes are rounded out by the classic toasted caramel malt character traditionally present in our favorite Oktoberfest seasonal beers.

Bramble Long Tongue Liar
Kettle Sour with Marionberries - 4.4%

Bramble Long Tongue Liar is a sweet, tart, and prickly kettle sour fermented with fresh Marionberry puree. Often called "The King of Blackberries" they offer a rich earthy flavor that melds sweet with tart. We whirlpool Comet, Mosaic, and Mandarina Bavaria to accentuate the citrus sweet fruit and berry flavor, while also adding a kiss of tangerine peel. Look for a light salty sweet body balanced out nicely with a dry hop of Perle to add an earthy herbal mint-like finish.
